A fascinating experience awaits on a cruise holiday to Dubai and the Middle East, where oil-rich states now provide a blend of old and new for travellers to enjoy.
One of the main areas of the United Arab Emirates, Dubai provides ample opportunities to splash out in one of the largest shopping malls in the world, to stroll along the waterfront or to pay a visit to the famed Burj Khalifa – where a ride up to the 124th floor will provide stunning views of city, sea and sand.
Camel riding or four-wheel drive trips into the desert only add to the experience.
A cruise around the Middle East is about much more than just Dubai however, with a fascinating insight into the history of Abu Dhabi available at the Heritage Village and the trading port of Muscat in Oman showing another side of Middle Eastern life.
No matter the itinerary, a cruise in the region will provide the opportunity to explore a diverse range of traditions and cultures, and to see the way in which the Arab nations have taken on an increasingly cosmopolitan feel thanks to the influence of the West.
A unique region that will provide travellers with a unique experience.
